Ever wondered what it would feel like to sleep under a priceless work of art? Well, wonder no longer. One of the city's most beloved museums, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, and in honor of the milestone and its own fifth birthday, the St. Regis has rolled out two limited edition MOMA suites and a MOMA Anniversary Travel Package, which lasts the duration of 2010.
San Francisco is a city for the workout obsessed. We take our runs seriously, our Lululemon seriously and our gym classes VERY seriously. So what we want to know is this: who is the city's best gym class instructor? We're talking across gyms and across classes (pilates, spin, yoga, bootcamp, cardio striptease - they're all fair game). Whose class do you make sure you get on the waiting list for? Let us know in the comments (plus the gym and the time of day they teach at). We'll do a feature on the most popular teacher.
Starting today, Horizon Air will begin its annual winter service to snowy Mammoth Mountain, offering daily flights from Los Angeles, Portland, San Jose, Reno and Seattle. Mammoth Mountain, one of California's ski resort gems, has already reaped the benefits of a winter wonderland with a base of five to eight feet--and even more on the way. The flights mark the beginning of regular air service to Mammoth throughout the snow season.
Feel like adding to your holiday loot? Well, the Larkspur Collection is more than happy to help stuff your stocking.
Art lovers will find delight in the posh Hotel Pacific and Monterey Museum of Art's "Mini-Me" deal. It focuses on the museum's annual exhibit of "small" paintings, photographs, prints, drawings and sculptures, all 7 inches by 9 inches or less and all up for auction, as donated by the artists. The special includes two tickets to the museum, two auction raffle tickets, and a night's stay in a deluxe suite, complete with cozy fireplace to keep the ocean chill at bay.
A cold front overtaking much of California and a recent bout of precipitation can mean only one thing...ski season has arrived!
As of Tuesday, snow totals at 9,000 feet or higher at Heavenly Mountain Resort topped out above 30 inches, and the powder will only continue to mount as the week progresses. So if you're a trail blazer--heck, even if you're simply a snow angel artiste--we suggest packing up your four-wheel drive and heading for South Lake Tahoe this weekend before the masses get there first.
True, it's frigid and semi-miserable in the Bay but guess what that also means: snow in Tahoe. And while we're joyfully toasting to this pre-holiday snow-treat, we're also raising our glasses something else lake-side: The new Ritz-Cartlton Highlands (North Star) which opens tomorrow! We're sort of drooling over it. It's fancy.
Don't know what to get the jetsetter in your life for the holidays? We've got some tips!
